I'm sure that other people besides myself use their Xbox 360 for playing music and media through an external hard drive. It's become quite useful for watching Funimation's One Piece when I miss an episode and end up torrenting it.
But here's the problem I'm having, and it has to do with the Japanese subbed version (anything released by K-F, Gerusama, ADC, Vegapunk, ASS, Instantz, etc.) When I try to watch an episode on my 360 (either in .avi or .mp4), the 360 zooms in on the picture by default, and I cannot read the subtitles. I have tried changing the viewing settings while playing the file, but nothing works. I CAN, however, change the viewing setting to "original", which reduces it to a very very very tiny resolution.
So to summarize, I want to watch the subbed version on my 360 (after all, I have an HDTV, I'd rather not use my 17-inch widescreen monitor to watch stuff), and the picture is zooming in to a point where the subtitles are cut off halfway through or almost entirely. Is there any way to force the 360 to correctly display these files?
